AnimeJapan’s annual “manga we want to see animated” poll is live, once again giving you a chance to pick the best manga for a new anime adaptation (probably on Crunchyroll). The poll is live now through March 4, 2024, at the end of the day JST, which is 10 a.m. EST on March 4, 2024.

Voting is open to international audiences on AnimeJapan’s English website, though some of the titles aren’t translated perfectly.
